A sprawling 8.2-acre estate in Center Moriches once owned by the deceased Filipino President Ferdinand Marcos and his wife Imelda has hit the market for $4.99 million. The massive Long Island property, known as the Lindenmere Estate, at 16 Sedgemere Road features 14 bedrooms, 17-and-a-half baths, a glass-enclosed Pagoda pool house, and incredible views of the Moriches Bay. According to the New York Post, after a brokerage switch, the listing’s price dropped from $5.99 million last year.

The Lindenmere was first built in 1916 as a residence but has also been used as a hotel and a bed and breakfast. The Marcos bought the estate for an unknown amount in 1981. After the Philippine Government took the property over in 1987, it sat on the market for nine years. It was purchased in 1996 for $1.6 million by Jennie and Peter Marago, but they are not the current owners.
